Looks like one that would smell very good. Have you taken a sniff?

Looks just like my beautiful native azaleas. Mine are not blooming yet, though -- this is from last year.

Yes they are gorgeous but take some time to get a good full bloom on them. I have 3 about 5 feet tall but only 2 bloomed last year and only one looks like it will bloom this year. I guess the ones getting more sun do the best for bloom. At our last house I had two pink and one orange and they all bloomed great. They are about 3 years old now.

Some photos of mine. Last year's disappointment and our last house's beauty plus my daughter in front of those two extra large azaleas at the last house.

Are there any plants that discourage snakes? If not, any other ideas? Carol7 35 Aug 23, 2007 12:37 AM
